Zentangle Flower Shop for DD.....

Hello everyone: It's been a while since I made a Zentangle card, for those of you who haven't heard about this fun doodling technique, it's just a relaxing and fun and very easy to learn way to create patterns, that can be, literally, anything that comes to your mind. Perhaps my card will show it better than I'm explaining it.

When I saw the mood board over at the Double D Challenges, the decorated wood eggs (well, they look like they are wood eggs to me) made me think of Zentangle and that's why I created this card.
These flowers are from a retired Stampin' Up! set called "Flower Shop" (2013-2014), I used the flower that has the outlines only so I could fill them up with my doodles. This set has a coordinating punch, which I used to punch out the flowers after I did my doodling.
The leaves are from an Altenew set called "Peony Bouquet", which I also decorated, and the sentiment is from another Altenew set called "Beautiful Day"

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like. 

I used a scrap piece of pattern paper as a border, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Springtime Love and I partially stamped and decorated the same flower at the bottom.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

These Flower Shop flowers never looked so good, Maria! They look great with the leaves, too. Flowers need leaves. I absolutely LOVE the Zentangle and you're very good at it. I've been examining all your patterns -- wow! This is amazing! What a fabulous entry for our Double D Pick a Pattern challenge!
